There is a dynamic that has been playing out for eons. A conflict between two disparate groups of people. The differences between these two groups have resulted in misunderstandings and even resentment as the smaller group feels crushed by the overwhelming majority. The greatest frustration of all being the fact that the larger group is largely unaware of the existence of anyone different from themselves.

Am I describing an X-Men episode? No. These aren’t people who can physically morph into other forms, like a human chameleon. They can’t literally control things with their mental power – bending metal, lifting coliseums, and manipulating people’s minds. There is no private training school set up to help these gifted individuals reach the pinnacle of their development and take the world by storm.

But what if I was to tell you there are human chameleons? People who learn to mirror and reflect the energies and emotions of those around them.

What if I told you there are gifted individuals who can shift reality with their minds because of their ability to see things differently? They can force archaic social structures to move under the pressure of altering ideals. They can reach into other people’s minds and understand their motives – even predict the future based upon acute observation.

These people exist. They are called Intuitives.

The Emergent Technology – Intuition

Carl Jung called the Intuitive processes (there are two), the newest mental technology to evolve in the human evolutionary dynamic. Intuition may have begun as an ability to sense when a predator was stalking its prey. The Intuitive “prey” would have made decisions to preserve their life and thereby pass on the Intuitive gene.

As cultures became more and more aware of the Intuitive ability to see and detect subtle clues in their environment, they would have been exalted as Shaman and Mages. These important roles as spiritual leaders would have helped protect the emergent gene even more. They wouldn’t have been allowed to hunt or conquer. They were the ones who guaranteed the success of the tribe through their ability to predict possible complications.

Some cultures deified these gifted Intuitives – others burned them at the stake. Many Intuitives were forced into hiding to preserve their lives, or the lives of their families.

Society has never looked fondly upon those who rock the boat. The vast majority of people prefer to hold on to the past. Thereby keeping things as they have always been. Yet, Intuitives have come upon the world scene, time after time, and showed society what needs to change. Over time, the changes are embraced and the world is better for it.

However, not all Intuitives are successful at forcing the world to see things their way. After eons of torture, imprisonment, and hangings many Intuitives choose the safest path to old age. They choose to “Blend” with the dominant social structure and keep their mouths shut, and their visions buried.

The Intuitive Awakening Movement

We no longer live in  a world where people are burned at the stake for speaking out against powerful paradigms, or are tortured for refusing to succumb to social pressures. (Although I’m sure it still happens in some cultures in the world, I am speaking to the western world, in general.) Yet, that fear is such a part of our societal DNA that people still tremble at the idea of being divergent.

There are an estimated 25% of Intuitives in a world dominated by Sensors (75%). Sensors prefer what is real and verifiable. Intuitives like to ask, “What if?” Sensors prefer “What is.”

When Intuitives blend with the world of Sensors they do the movement a disservice. Did I just use the word “Movement?” Yes. We are here to start a movement whereby Intuitives learn to understand themselves, and by doing so, teach Sensors to acknowledge their value.

This movement will never get off the ground until all Intuitives who are “Blending,” and afraid to acknowledge their differences, step into the light and demand equal representation. Most Intuitives have no more idea of their existence than the Sensor world. They know on a profound level that they are different from the world in general – even alien – but they reach the unfortunate conclusion that it is a flaw within themselves alone.

“Intuitives need to be awakened to their true potential so they can bring their gifts to the world.”

Our mission here at Personality Hacker is to bring about an Intuitive Awakening. To create understanding between Sensors and Intuitives. To teach Sensors about the outliers in the world and the importance of encouraging them rather than the reverse. To teach Intuitives the importance of coming out of their shell, and communicating their ideas with a world that needs more persuasion before it embraces change.

It has been said that the tipping point in an evolving situation  is 17.5%. That is the number of Intuitives we need to awaken to their gifts and start forcing society to acknowledge our existence. If we could get all 25% of the Intuitive population to embrace their uniqueness, a new and irreversible development would cause a shift in society that would change the world forever.

This Intuitive Awakening is important to the evolution of society. Many of the big game changers from history have been Intuitives:

  • Jesus of Nazareth
  • Buddha
  • Walt Disney
  • Carl Jung
  • Sigmund Freud
  • Galileo
  • Nikolai Tesla
  • Charles Darwin
  • Albert Einstein
  • Leonardo da Vinci
  • Isaac Newton

These people made an impact during their lives. They changed the world of their time and we are still feeling the effects of their vision.

What future emergents are yet to be discovered by Intuitives? What emergents will never see the light of day because the Intuitive with the necessary gifts is afraid to step out and stop blending?

As far as I know, there is no Xavier’s School of Gifted Youngsters. Much of the school system in the developed world is still dominated by Sensors.

However, we here at Personality Hacker are attempting to educate Intuitives to grab hold of their gifts and share them with the world.

If you are an Intuitive, or you know of one who could use some inspiration, we encourage you to check out our Intuitive Awakening program. It is an 8 hour program complete with video, slides, and audio presentations. A study guide helps the students work through their own struggles and gifts and find their passion.

If you were born Intuitive, you are obligated to step into your gifts and change the world in some way. Don’t waste your genius. Join our movement and the world will be forced to change with us.

    As an INFP, I really appreciated Intuitives being compared to X-Men! Very good story telling! Also, I’m totally in with a Charles Xavier school for the Intuitives.

    It is hard to step out and put yourself in economic jeopardy when there is not a net or back up to ask as a buffer. Oh to be self-financing! I have blended for a long time just to play the game and make a living. I’m currently working on a plan to become more economically self-sufficient so the people depending on me do not suffer when I decide to become “unpopular”.

      I hear you Christine and have the same dilemma, yet I’ve never managed to blend well enough for the sake of making a living. Find myself pulled in both directions for admirable reasons for both directions. To make a living and live out of my authentic, intuitive self, that’s the dream.

    Nice work. I’ve often wondered how many intuitives there are out there whom don’t realize they’re an intuitive,instead going through life knowing something is different about them but can’t quite pinpoint it. Many intuitives learn to hold back from a young age as their ideas and styles are often ridiculed and misunderstood. It’s an unfortunate situation because it’s a waste of a unique set of skills and resources which are short in supply.

    I’m very interested in the Intuitive Awakening Program, but bhere didn’t seem to be a place to make a comment directly on that page.

    The program mentions mentors, which is very much what I have been looking for. Will PH help one locate a mentor if one signs up for the IA program?

    The intuitive awakening movement is a great idea, but that it should focus more on a variety of learning styles rather than just “intuitive”. Intuitive feelers are significantly different from intuitive thinkers, and the same system will not necessarily benefit both of them. The education system needs a re-haul anyways because it’s catered towards a mere fraction of the students.

    Anyways, not all revolutionaries or thinkers are intuitives, and not all intuitives are revolutionaries. I firmly believe that all types have the potential to change the world in different ways. Some examples that come to mind are George Washington (ISTJ), Oscar Wilde (ESTP), Mozart (ISFP), and Desmond Tutu (ESFJ).

    There’s nothing wrong with the majority of the world functioning for the majority of the population. The problem isn’t that intuitives are “oppressed” throughout history; it’s that sensors and intuitives have a massive misunderstanding of how both groups function. A tendency I’ve noticed in many typology websites is that N types are treated as some kind of special, misunderstood gift to the world. N’s are not better, smarter, or more capable than S’s; it’s that their skills are manifested are better for different situations. If the movement doesn’t expand to include the entire range of thinking styles outside of the socially expected norm, it will not succeed on any level.

      Type patriotism shows up for all types. This article wasn’t saying any type or cluster of types are better, but rather they have different needs and some type’s needs go more unmet than others.

      I’d strongly recommend listening to the Personality Hacker series of podcasts on Intuitives to get a more fleshed out concept of the two different styles of intuition – Extraverted Intuition and Introverted Intuition – and a better sense of what we mean by Intuitive Awakening.

        Antonia, I loved the recent (October?? 2015) podcast you & Joel did on starting an Intuitive Awakening movement. I found it inspiring and exciting!

        Cora, I think you would find on listening to that podcast that this movement for Intuitive Awakening is not at all saying that Intuitives are special and therefore somehow better than Sensors. Rather, it’s about Intuitives recognizing that a) WE exist (i.e., they’re not the only one on the planet) and b) there’s nothing *wrong* with us; we just perceive the world differently – in a way that is equally valid and valuable as the way Sensors perceive the world. Most of the time when a person has felt somehow “less than” everyone else for a large part of their life, they tend to go thru a period of thinking they’re “better than” when they first learn what is actually going on. Once they’ve assimilated the new knowledge, most people come back to a recognition that we are ALL equally valuable and have important gifts to bring. Most of us have to go thru that process of “less than” –> “better than” before we can get to “different from & equally valuable,” and my understanding is that Charis’s article is directed toward those in the beginning stages of that journey.

        (Side note: My OCD Inner Grammarian cannot let me go without giving my apologies for all my mixed pronouns/numbers and any other grammatical/spelling errors. I hate just leaving them there but am practicing leaving perfectionism behind. Sort of.)

    The Xavier’s School analogy is similar to an idea I once had. Not necessarily a school that singles out different people, but one devoted entirely to achieving the impossible and breaking the conceptual barriers of reality through innovative thought.

      Thanks for the comment Vaughn! That sounds like an amazing school. And a better concept than Xavier’s because it recognizes that talent lies across all barriers.

    This article, and the Personality Hacker web site as a whole, gives me a good sense of where my place has been in this society. I have always felt there was something wrong with me, have made SO many intuitive ‘mistakes’ and had embarrassing outcomes, and have not fitted into a ‘sensible’ work role. Each time I follow the tortoise effect: withdraw to my comfort zone of aloneness and confusion to lick my wounds. Through your web site, Antonia and Joel, with the indispensable Charis, plus an intuitive therapist, I have wound out of a very confused couple of years. I am clearer what has been happening (and knew it didn’t require medication) and am even beginning to get excited by my future again. As you say, everyone has value in the social mix….and I am determined to develop mine to the fullest somehow… Meanwhile, I am really enjoying the learning experience in this group… Thanks. INTJ

    Good article with good intentions. I believe in the general message but there are a couple problematic things that I noticed. First, I really wish this movement, which seems really significant and important, wasn’t tied to selling a product. That really undercuts its message. Once you realize that you are selling a product it seems like everything you said is potentially advertising for this product. Also, this statement stuck out as over the top” “All the big game changers from history have been Intuitives.” All? Really? This is probably not true and you certainly can’t prove it.

      I appreciate your comment, though I disagree that providing a course on the topic removes the significance of the movement. There are quite a few free resources we provide including an Intuitive Awakening group you can join here: http://www.facebook.com/groups/PHIntuitiveAwakening

      It’s filled with amazing people, most of whom have not purchased anything from PH. We really dig our community.

      I agree with your second point completely. The article has been edited to update a more accurate statement. Thanks for pointing it out. 🙂
